Oh God No Not Again: Steam Summer Sale 2012
With 136 games on my Steam list and at most a third of those played, and only half of those beyond two hours, I really should know better, but I am weak and my wallet is suffering again.
The Steam Summer Sale runs from July 12th 6pm (i.e. tonight) to July 22nd and will likely cost you a small fortune.
Novelties this time round are a round of voting every 8 hours on the games you'd like to see headline tomorrow's discounts, and flash sales running anywhere from 6 to 12 hours because they needed more ways of tricking you into impulse purchases of every game made in the last 5 years.
Today's highlights, personally speaking: lots of Total War on sale; Crusader Kings II on sale (which I may go for in just a moment); Portal 2 at less than £4 if you've still somehow not got round to it; and Terraria and Legend of Grimrock for indie goodness. (There's an Indie Bundle as well but the store keeps timing out from heavy load so I've no idea what's in it, though I probably have most of them from Humble Bundles etc.)
Strength and honour, fellow broke gamers.
